Orange County ministry creates ‘currency’ to give to homeless
WINTER GARDEN, Fla. – An Orange County ministry has created “Pastor Blessing Bucks,” a makeshift currency that allows anyone to buy vouchers they can give to homeless people they encounter, and ensure the money will go toward a positive use. “It’s a currency that can only be spent through Matthew’s Hope for things you truly needed,” founder and Pastor Scott Billue said. If they tear it up, it’s still going to Matthew’s Hope to help those in need. “How far does that get you?”The issue of giving the homeless money isn’t something that’s expected to end anytime soon. Anyone can buy Pastor Blessing Bucks at Matthew’s Hope along Business Park Boulevard in Winter Garden.
